Gaimanesque tomatoes

If you are a regular reader of Neil Gaiman’s blog, you will occasionally see a picture of him holding up a devilishly-horned tomato in the right-hand margin of the page. (He has rotating photos, which is very cool.)

I thought the photo also cropped up in his photo gallery, but apparently I’m wrong about that.

Somehow, the muses that connect us all have cross-pollinated my tomato patch with a hint of the Gaimanesque.

Here’s the proof.

If I start writing about graveyards, you’ll know why.

  1. Stra-a-a-a-a-ange. Very strange.
    On a different note, aren’t you glad you don’t have to worry about your parents getting soaked by Fay?

  2. Homegrown Tomatoes

    Thanks for sharing your funky tomato. One of my favorite songs comes to mind…..

    “There ain’t nothin’ in the world that I like better
    Than bacon ‘n lettuce ‘n homegrown tomatoes
    Up in the morning, out in the garden
    Get you a ripe one, don’t get a hard ‘un
    Plant ’em in the spring, eat ’em in the summer
    All winter without ’em is a culinary bummer
    I forget all about the sweatin’ and the diggin’
    Every time I go out and pick me a big ‘un”

    “Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes
    What’d life be without homegrown tomatoes
    Only two things that money can’t buy
    That’s true love and homegrown tomatoes”

    lyrics by John Denver……

    I hope you enjoyed it and hum it all day long!

    Don’t forget to make a batch of fried green tomatos too. YUMMY!!!!!

  3. I like that the bottom one looks like it’s sticking out its little tomato tongue. “I say ‘nyah’ to your threats of marinara and salsa,” it seems to be saying.

  4. tomatoes!

    I love his blog. He’s so quirky.

    I’m on a private group with a number of women I’ve known for a while, and one of our more hilarious exchanges has been when we send each other photos of our rude vegetables. It’s surprising how many there are out there…
